Annual Christmas House Tour features the spirit of the season in Hightstown and East Windsor

Warm weather didn’t melt the Christmas spirit of the crowds at the bi-annual Christmas House Tour on Dec. 13.
Six homes in Hightstown and East Windsor were on the candlelight tour, showcasing holiday decor ranging from traditional and vintage to contemporary.
The Lee Turkey Farmhouse and the Rutherford house are beautiful historic properties with fascinating stories of bygone days. At the Rosenberg house, guests were captivated by the music of the Brian Hunter Trio, and delighted by the Nutcracker collection at the Cummings house. A paper village and animal-themed ornaments were a hit at the Harris house.
The event is sponsored by the Hightstown Woman’s Club.
Earlier in the day, the Hightstown- East Windsor Historical Society hosted the annual “Christmas Tea” and guests enjoyed the performance of the Hights-Tones, under the direction of Charlie Ernst, from the Hightstown High School while shopping at the holiday boutique in the Historical Society freight station.
Later in the evening, the public sang Christmas favorites with the bell choir during the concert at the First United Methodist Church on Stockton Street.
